4:14 pm
coming up in our next hour. live in center city, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. e we want to take you back to las vegas where lester holt has an nbc news special report. >> as police closed in, let's check in as we wait for this news conference with steve patterson in las vegas. >> we are learning about the background, but still know so little about what motivated this mass killing thrks press conference could contain any number of things. the most pertinent, the numbers that we have. the death toll, 59. that number could change. the number of injured, 527, that could go up or down depending on how many dead there are now in local hospitals. we know we have been get iting warnings from the coroner's office that that number may change based on the number of injured they took in in all of the hospitals. some of them were in serious
4:15 pm
condition. others were in critical condition. so that's something to watch for. orders, we're looking at the shooter. he lives in a retirement community. this was a quiet guy. this was a a guy who was a real estate investor and had a number of money. so we're trying to check into his background to see if this conference e reveals anything about his background or the numbers that we have. >> stay with us in las vegas. let me get to pete williams quickly. you have someç new report iing today about his recent transactions, his recent gambling. >> right, he had in the last couple weeks gambling transactions, over 16 of them, for more than $10,000 a piece. he was a high roller gambler. they know how it was he was able to fire shots so rapidly. he had something called a bump stock attached to the back of
4:16 pm
some of the rifles that he had, which basically allow you to use the recoil action of the rifle to fire the rifle very quickly. that's how he was able to get that sound of gunfire that sounded like a machine gun like automatic tire. they also say last week he wired $100,000 to the philippines. that's where his girlfriend is from. officials say that's where she was at the time of the attack that she was in the philippines visiting relatives. she's due back in the u.s. later this week. the las vegas police department is very eager to talk to her to see what she knows and if she had any idea if this was what he was preparing to do. >> to this point, authorities in las vegas have said they don't believe she had anything to do with the crime, correct? >> what they have said is they are sure she wasn't involved with it because she wasn't here at the time it happened, but i think they just don't know whether she had any idea he was planning this or talking about it and that's why they want to
4:17 pm
talk to her. >> and as we look at the room, they are testing the microphones now. there's a screen up. i presume we don't know what kind of video they might be showing us. >> we don't. we know they say they are going to show a video. we don't know what it is. it seems unlikely it's going to be the crime scene itself inside the hotel room. i just don't know what it is. we'll have to wait and see. >> if we could show that video that's just coming in. this is video outside the hotel room or rooms that were used by mr. paddock. what did they find inside of that room? >> if you go back to the begin ing and freeze that video, if it's possible, you can see down inside the door there one of the weapons that he used. now that is a sniper type rifle with a scope on the top. those two legs in front that fold down on the rifle, that's called a bipod. it gives whoever is firing the weapon more stability because
4:18 pm
you can ground the front end of the weapon and it makes it more accurate. so that's one of the weapons he had. they say now he had 23 weapons, sniper rifles like that and then more ar assault weapon type rifles with high capacity magazines that explains how he was able to fire so many rounds because he had the high capacity magazines and then the bump stock ob some of these weapons a allows the weapons to be fired sort of like a machine gun. automatically get iting all tha continuous. rapid fire that we heard on these video, when you hear the rounds going off. >> standby for us. steve patterson -- actually the news conference is just about to start. we'll come back to you. let's go to the sheriff of clark county joe lombardo.
4:19 pm
>> carlos? are we good? we're not going to e show any video. good afternoon, everybody. you are aware of who i am, sheriff joe lombardo, clark county. this is going to be a little different orchestration in this press conference compared to the rest. what i'm going to do right now, i think it's important that we address the victim issues we are experiencing and the resource issues that we are experiencing. so i'm going to key on that on the original portion of this. subsequently, the commissioner is going to provide some donation information and acknowledgment and then after that i will come back to the
4:20 pm
podium and address the overall investigation, where we stand and where we are going. reference to the investigation piece, i don't want to repeat of it's an ongoing investigation. so i will be limited in the details that i provide you. but hopefully we can get through this with some decorum. so please don't rush me all at once. when we get to the question phase, i will identify you if you raise your hand. sound fair? we'll get through this. so as matters formality our department has worked through the night to identify the victims of the mass shooting on route 91 harvest festival. we have identified all but three victims. we still have an active scene at the grounds so we ask anyone to stay away from that area until further notice. the fbi is working diligently to clear that scene.
4:21 pm
so the question is the fbi v versus us, we have partnered with the fbi, as i said, from the very beginning of this in an investigative phase. the fbi has brought a large amount of resources out of washington, d.c. to assist us with that. so the reason why the harvest festival is still in continuation of investigation is not only solely related to the removal of the victims, but is also documentation of the scene. so we're using the best practice technology to ensure that we have complete documentation. that's why it's taking a longer period of time associating with this. so we ask for everybody's patience. as far as las vegas boulevard, north and south we anticipate to be open shortly in the next few hours to benefit with commerce
4:22 pm
and what we do as a community. the key component here is resources and victim identification. bare with me. i'm going to try to get through this the best i can, but the important piece is if you missed a number, we are putting up on in the next hour the listing of all numbers i shall provide you today. and for people out in the public to contact us if they are lacking this or don't see this broadcast. we're asking for anyone who might have information about the shooting in a criminal capacity or a victim of the shooting to contact us via 311. if you are out of state and have left since the shooting and you have discover ed that you have become a victim or realize you have an injury associated to it, we're still acting you to contact us but 702-828-3111 is
4:23 pm
the out of state number. additionally, if you are a local and you have the ability to respond to a local substation, a working police substation, locals are familiar with and have the ability to file a report at that location. now the family reunification. all that is occurring at the family resource center at the convention center located at 3150 paradise road. you can go there to file a missing person report. you can go there to have contact with the coroner's office and to get answers to your questions as far as family reunificatioreuni. the phone number if you have left the area is 1-866-535-5654.
4:24 pm
now we ent went through a short process recently where that number was down. we provide d a separate number. but we will go back to that original number because we have the technical aspects of that f fixed. i want to be clear on the difference. if you are report iing a crime feel you are a victim of a crime, 311 is your outlet for a local police substation. if you are looking for victim information or family reunification, the family resource center on paradise road is your point of contact. now personal property. we're getting several questions throughout yesterday and continuing today, people attempting to recover their personal property from route ç scene. we are working out the e details of that. we are in the planning phase of that. we will have an answer for that in the next couple hours.
4:25 pm
so we'll provide an answer to that probably before we have another press conference. so we are working diligently to get individuals who left personal property at the scene back to them as soon as possible. i anticipate it will not take place at the route 91 location, but i do not want to give further clarification at that point. you will be provided that. the other issue is donations. you can imagine in any critical incident, the outpouring of support from private citizens, corporations, everybody else associated with concern for the victims is overwhelming. we appreciate that. but it comes a point we can't manage it. now the red cross is unable to manage it. we are unable to manage it at the substations. so if it's hard goods such as
4:26 pm
water or stuff that is not perishab perishable, three square and catholic charities is accepting those donations. so we're asking you to provide that information to your listening public and to accept donations at that point. so let me give you the addresses for those. catholic charities is at 1501 las vegas boulevard north. and three square is at 4190 north pecos road. at this point, i will turn it over to the commissioner and he will give you an update on the donation phase of this as far as victim satisfaction and then i will return and will conduct a q&a associating with the investigation. >> thank you, sheriff. we appreciate you all being here
4:27 pm
today to give you an update on where we stand. the fund has surfaced 3.dl 7 million as we speak. i want to bring we need a lot more resources. we're going to need more money. we have individuals that are going to need future surgeries and help moving forward. i want to acknowledge a few special individuals not included in that might be. last night a private citizen called the sheriff and i and contributed $500,000 to the fund. that is not included in the total this morning. wayne and kathleen newton and they have donated $100,000. that's not included in that total. for those who want the to contribute and don't want to do it on gofundme, you can mail a check to the county office or the sheriffs office. but i just got off the phone with mgm international and the sheriff and i both spoke to him
4:28 pm
and obviously they have stepped up in an enormous manner with this community. >> we continue to bring you live coverage from las vegas this afternoon. officials are updating the big headline there is identified all but three victims killed in the massacre. that means 56 names that they have linked to the bodies there at the scene. we'll continue to monitor that news conference and bring you new information that comes out of it. jacqueline london is live for us in las vegas track iing e day's developments. >> reporter: the city still reeling from sunday's shooting. nbc has obtained new surveillance video of the shooter at a different casino years ago. you're going to see that. plus details on how the shooting brought two strakers together forever. the emotional reunion that unfolded on live tv. those stories and more ahead as our coverage continues from las vegas. and we have a warm up on the
